Pros:Robust, very sharp lens "even at TA", AF fast enough, TA diaphragm not bad "f3.5-4.8".
Cons:Apart from the absent tropicalization, DO NOT HAVE PURCHASED IT BEFORE!
Opinion:As an owner of various Fuji lenses, I must say that this 55-200mm zoom remains one of my favorite lenses, I can safely confirm both the build quality and sharpness as well as an excellent compactness and a really low weight. Freehand, using safety times, you can already appreciate a high sharpness already at TA, mounted on my X-H2S I can get excellent shots of birds "not too pushed" as evidence that the stabilizer and AF work very well! The fact that it is not a tropicalized lens has not influenced my purchase decision, maybe for someone it is a problem, I do not take pictures in the rain! So and as far as I am concerned it is absolutely not a problem. Before buying this remarkable lens, I happened to read in some reviews (few), that exceeded a certain focal length, from 150mm up to 200mm, the lens begins to have a drop in sharpness even considerable, now, it will be that I happened to a perfect specimen .... bah! I don't think so luck!.... my 55-200 is sharp even at maximum extension and maximum aperture, obviously the distances between camera and subject must be considered but I can honestly say that I do not see this loss of sharpness, indeed I invite you to view some photos taken with this lens posted on my Juza profile. the AF goes a bit into crisis if there is poor light but this happens mainly with long focal lengths, vignetting such as flare are really minimal and are present only at TA in addition, distortion such as aberration is practically absent, things that instead I happen to find more clearly in much more expensive lenses! Using this medium canvas I understood one thing, sometimes it is not necessary to spend barrels of money to have a quality return and this lens is the testimony. I am really satisfied and highly recommend this Zoom!
Pros:Lightness, size, sharpness, stabilization, quality/price ratio
Opinion:Excellent telephoto zoom of high amateur range, it stands out for the wide and complementary focal range to the 18-55 that with small dimensions and weight, combined with excellent quality makes it perfect for landscaping and street photography. Equipped with good brightness and excellent sharpness. After a while I use it I must say that it amazes me more and more in a positive sense, especially thinking that I bought it at a very good price The lens is built in Japan and the build quality is up to all the other Fuji lenses. Obviously it is not a professional lens and especially in portraiture it can not stand comparison with the brother 50-140 2.8 but for the weight and price, about half make it very competitive. Another consideration is the lack of WR unlike the 70-300 and the block of the lens that walking could stretch but for me it is not a problem since it is not a professional lens, instead it has a nice stabilization unlock button that the 70-300 does not have and you have to go and unlock it in the car.
Opinion:Purchased a year ago and kept a few months enticed by complementarity with the 18 55. In fact if you are satisfied cin these two zoom le jeux sont fait. At that time, however, I also bought the 90mm f2, and as a foregone conclusion I noticed the big flaws. As I always say I love the fixed, the precious ones, and there is no competition cin the zooms. But while the 23 1.4 did not make them pass the desire to use the 18 55 that I still consider exceptionally successful lens, the 90 made me hate the zoom in review of which I could not appreciate a lot. I can't say anything else. Technically they say a lot about others. I sold it.
Cons:low light, af in critical light conditions, footprint at maximum focal length
Opinion:Surely it is the ideal travel companion for the 18-55mm, with which it constitutes a valid and close-knit couple. The sharpness is good and appreciable, even if it decays to the maximum focal length if the subjects are very distant. The autofocus is responsive but in low light it flounders. The low light is low and is a limiting factor if not during the day, or in conditions where the light is abundant. Excellent stabilization. Good construction. The dimensions are not excessive but become important when the zoom extends to the maximum focal length, especially with the hood mounted. The numbering on the ring of the diaphragms is missing: nothing tragic but it is a small neglect that could have been avoided. Summing up, a lens that for a generic use (travel) and not specialized (portrait, sports, photographic hunting) is more than fine and, despite some flaws, it turns out to be a zoom with an excellent quality-price ratio.
Pros:Great lens for sharpness, weight and footprint if he had also had the barrel lock would have been perfect
Cons:The thing I didn't like is the fact that I didn't insert a lens block that allows you not to let the barrel out when you hold it over the shoulder , it's annoying to see it go out all the time and dust itself unnecessarily.
Opinion:Excellent lens for sharpness, weight and footprint. It has nothing to envy to targets of more famous and much more expensive brands. I took him to the mountains several times bringing home some great photos without breaking my back. The thing I find very annoying though is the barrel that comes out as soon as you put the lens in the right.
